This month, we're excited to feature middle school teacher Eydie Simpson.
Teaching the gifted has been the most rewarding experience of my 14-year teaching career. Due to the fact that I have been able to teach many of my students for multiple years, GT has afforded me the unique opportunity to build lasting relationships with students and families.
I am inspired every time a former student stops by or emails to tell me about his or her academic achievements. It is humbling to feel that I am part of their successes. I am currently working on my masters degree in curriculum and instruction with an advanced certificate in gifted education, and am looking forward to expanding my role in reaching these special children.
Eydie Simpson is a GT teacher at Clark Middle School.
